Why do 16 million people visit San Francisco each year?  It’s not only because San Francisco is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, but it offers many activities for families – and many of those activities and events are Free!

Walk through the coolest water/artwork in San Francisco. The Vaillancourt Fountain, built in 1971 by a French Canadian sculptor, Francois Vailancourt, releases thousands of gallons of recycled water from its sculptured viaduct
Water fountains are a favorite with the kids.s.  All ages enjoy the thrill of stepping on the path of large stones through the roaring water and climbing the metal stairs up to a second story gangplank.

 Our girls loved the farmers market.
Samples of the most delicious cheeses, gourmet mustards, flavored olive oils, and delicious breads are for sale inside this landmark building at 1 Ferry Building, San Francisco. It's a great place to pick up picnic items for lunch and sit outside viewing San Francisco’s Bay and Bay Bridge. Get a freshly baked French baguette for under $2 and a hunk of cheese from the Cowgirl Creamery. Many of the shops and restaurants close their doors around dinnertime, so come early in the day. Outside, on a local Farmer’s Market day, you’ll find booths of both fresh fruit and vegetables
to sample. Our girls loved the farmers market.
